As a photographer I like to get close into peoples lives to capture authentic and intimate moments. I studied International Business and worked in the fast-moving consumer goods industry for 10 years. In 2013 I switched careers and started studying at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam and graduated in 2017. My photography is a mix of social engaged projects, personal work and client commissions, all of which are shot with a documentary approach. I am big fan of the photojournalistic approach so I don't interfere and keep an eye out for genuine moments happening in front of my lens. In my work I focus on milestones such as reunifications, births and weddings. Life wrapped up in love, hope and happiness. It is an honor to be invited into people's lives to capture and document important events. I am always looking for interesting images that tell a story and celebrate life. My style is unposed and my goal is to bring you back to the moment to relive your experience. With my husband Matthijs and our son Tibbe I live in the beautiful city of Naarden. If you would like to get in touch with me to find out more about what I offer please feel free to contact me via email (, phone or WhatsApp (06 42866142).
